This weekend surely proved to be a very exciting one in sports, what with all of the finals going on and some serious slugging. One major note to make is that BRETT FAVRE IS REMAINING RETIRED even though the Vikings are still interested, and of course, Manny has apologized to owner of the Dodgers Frank McCourt (next step: apologize to team mates). Here is a quick roundup of this weekend’s big plays, accompanied with the gorgey gents that made things possible…The New York Mets have been on a seven game winning streak, most recently sweeping the Pittsburgh Pirates at home this past weekend. Including Saturday’s high scorer with a 10-1 win and Sunday’s 8-4 victory, key plays from Jose Reyes (including stealing his 300th base) and a big hit from catcher Omir Santos bringing in two runs (with 2 more in the 8th from Beltran’s slug) were just a taste of what the gents had to offer this weekend.
While I’m not a huge Angels fan, no one could ignore the AMAZING catch Torii Hunter made, robbing Kansas City’s Miguel Olivio of a game-tying homer in the 9th, leaving the Angels with a 4-3 victory.
Next up and hard to ignore was the trifecta accomplished by Boston this weekend, with the Celtics earning a huge win ON THE BUZZER with a shot by Glenn Davis leading to a 95-94 victory over the Magic in Game 4 Sunday night. The series is now tied with 2 games each.
The Red Sox also snuck in a win after an impressive ninth inning from Papelbon, shutting out three straight hitters after letting two on with no outs. They defeated Tampa 4-3.
Finally, the Bruins came through with a very key shutout win against the Hurricanes in Game 5, making the series 3-2.
Finally, the Yankees FINALLY won a game. And my favorite head of hair on the team brought in a three run homer to help that along.
So there you have it. Cute guys, clutch plays. Hopefully they all called their mommas because NOTHING is hotter than a man who treats his mom well!
